Coláiste Thulach Sheasta, Newport College is a post primary Community College under the patronage of the Tipperary Education and Training Board (TETB). We are a state, co-educational, multi-denominational school and we strive to realise our mission through our core values: Excellence, Care, Equality, Community and Respect.
As an ETB Community College, we give equal opportunities to all students in the community we serve, and we strive to provide high quality education through respectful, positive, supportive and responsive learning environments and respect.
Excellence: Excellence includes excellence in education, training, and support. It is underpinned by the core values of care, respect, community, and equality. Excellence encompasses outcomes, experiences, and expectations of people involved.
Care: Care is about the welfare, wellbeing, and safety of all who are involved in education and training. It is exemplified in meaningful relationships, connectedness, and empathy, alongside support and solidarity.
Equality: Equality is about treating everyone equally and recognising and celebrating the diversity of those involved in education, training, and youth work. It is exemplified in targeting resources on those who have need and prioritising a culture of inclusion.
Community: Community encompasses learners, their families, staff, and the local communities in which our services are based. It is about having shared vision, values and purpose, a sense of belonging, and a voice that is listened to. It is exemplified in productive collaboration, positive contributions, and effective communication amongst all stakeholders.
Respect: Respect is about upholding the dignity, rights, and recognition of the identity and background of all those involved in education, training, and youth work. It is exemplified in relationships between all stakeholders, and decision-making that impacts positively on the rights, feelings, and aspirations of the diversity of people.
